Becoming a professional bridal photographer in Singapore is not a commonly discussed topic, because everyone is obsessed about the financial industry in Singapore. In the past, people used to be obsessed about the shipping industry, followed by the financial industry now. However, being a bridal photographer has all along been a lucrative career opportunity. This is because the wedding photography is an industry where top photographers are paid a lot, and terrible photographers get chased out of the industry extremely quickly.
Here are some things you may want to note if you’re considering a career in wedding photography in Singapore, as few websites will ever share with you how it is like being a professional bridal photographer in Singapore.
Firstly, you are usually placed with a lot of trust. If you are not the type of person who can take such pressure, do not be a wedding photographer, and certainly not an actual day wedding photographer in Singapore. This is because people in Singapore love to complain about all kinds of things, so if you do not take nice photographs of them, you’re almost guaranteed bad reviews and complaints of you will pop up on social media. If you have the guts and strong self belief in the quality of your wedding images, read on.

Secondly, there is one big difference between wedding photography and other types of professional photography. This is especially the case for actual day event photography. There is no such thing as asking the couple to go back and re enact a scene just because you screwed up. You must make sure you make it right the first time. Therefore, you must be a real expert at candid photography to be an excellent wedding photographer!
Thirdly, it is widely known among the photography industry that being a wedding photographer is the epitome of photography. It is the hardest and most stressful type of photography available, due to the high expectations of the customers. In fact, that is the reason why bridal photographers are among the highest paid photographers in the world, and this is hte case in Singapore too!
